Bike & Barge Moselle and Saar

Deutschlands schönste Flusslandschaften...

Koblenz - Saarburg

„Little Venice“ is the destination of this bike & barge trip and the analogy hits the point. Saarburg is proud of 1000 years history, a medieval past and vivacious present. Nestling in midst of vineyards and forests within the triangle Germany-France-Luxembourg the heritage shows in many a monument.
The cultural and historic heritage will be a constant companion during this cycle trip: from the Romans who settled here and left Porta Nigra in Trier, to medieval little towns and places with gingerbread houses, vineyards and the spectacular Saar river bend. A tour that combines highlights of two rivers and a comfortable way of exploring them with your swimming hotel always there to meet you after an exciting cycling day.

Itinerary

Embarkation between 4 and 5 p.m. You will spend the evening and first night in Koblenz.

By ship to Alken, where your bike tour starts. You are cycling to Moselkern and then on to Cochem. Cochem is a lovely little town with historical half-timbered-houses and a picturesque Old town. Inexperienced cyclists we recommend spending the day on board and use the day off to visit Cochem in the afternoon.

The bike tour will take you to Beilstein first, which you can explore during a short tour on your own. Pass Europe’s steepest vineyard at Bremmer Calmont. Today´s tour ends in the wine village of Zell on the Moselle. You should take the time to enjoy the popular wines.

You are cycling from Zell to romantic Traben-Trarbach, where Jugendstil architecture shows its best side. After that the middle aged market place of Bernkastel-Kues invites you for a rest. You will reach the ship in Kues after a tour through town.

Cycle tour to Piesport, the oldest winegrowing community along the Moselle. Visit the Roman cellars and the vineyards on your own. Further on you are going to Neumagen-Dhron which is the oldest wine city of Germany. After lunch break the tour continues to Mehring.

You will cycle via Pfalzel to Trier, where MS PATRIA is already waiting for you. Trier is one of the oldest cities of Germany and its Roman roots are still visible in impressive buildings as the Porta Nigra, the Konstantin basilica and the Amphitheatre.

Today you will be cycling along the river from Trier via Wasserbillig in Luxembourg to Saarburg, also called “little Venice”. In its centre you will find a waterfall of 20 meters deep as well as many baroque buildings and fisher houses.

Disembarkation after breakfast until 9:00 a.m. Individual journey home.

The route

Very good cycle paths, mostly with asphalted or metalled surface. No climbs worth mentioning. Therefore this tour is perfectly suited for beginners.

Eine ausgezeichnete Reise, sehr empfehlenswert
Urlaub von der ersten Minute an. Kompetente und stets freundliche Reiseleitung und Crew. Die Strecken sind gut ausgebaut. Ausflüge waren gut dosiert und sehr informativ. Am schönsten war die Weinprobe im Weinberg Piesporter Goldtröpfchen. Anregung: Verlängern sie die Reise bis Mettlach.

Wiederholenswert
Es gibt ein Problem, wenn man mit eigenen Rädern anreist. Wie kommt man wieder zu seinem Wagen in Koblenz zurück? Ein Transfer (teuer) wird zwar angeboten, kann aber erst vor Ort gebucht werden, wenn vier Personen zusammenkommen. Das wäre wohl bei unserer Reise nicht der Fall gewesen. Wir mussten also einen Tag vorher nach Koblenz anreisen. Am Samstagmorgen fuhr ich das Auto nach Saarburg und kam mit Bahn und Bus zurück nach Koblenz. Das ist doch ein gewisser Umstand
